Improving Diabetes Management For Practice Nurses

The workshop series will focus on how primary care nurses can play a pivotal role in the prevention and management of diabetes in general practice, leading to an improvement in patient outcomes, teamwork and revenue for your practice. Gain real confidence to guide and educate your patients to better manage diabetes, their lifestyle habits and their diabetes understanding.

I attended the diabetes education sessions and highly praise the program. I found every session beneficial and I came away with so much more knowledge and confidence. All the topics covered were so relevant to my day to day work. I highly recommend this program to all practice nurses.
